rose gin fizz cocktail recpe

A couple of years ago Simon introduced me to what a good Gin & Tonic should taste like, since then I have fallen in love with this simple drink. It immediately makes me think of hot summer afternoons spent lazing around, and just enjoying the moment. Since I discovered my love for gin I have played with quite a few different drink. From complex cocktails to simple variations of the classic G&T. This time I bring you an elegant cocktail, that is fruity and floral but not too sweet. The perfect getting ready drink for a girls night out.

Raspberry Syrup
  1. 1/2 cup water
  2. 1/2 cup sugar white sugar
  3. 1 cup raspberries
Cocktail
  1. 1 1/2 oz gin
  2. 3/4 oz liqueur framboise
  3. 1 oz raspberry syrup
  4. 3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  5. 3 drops rosewater
  6. 1 egg white
  7. 1 1/2 oz soda water or tonic
For the Raspberry Syrup
  1. In a small saucepan heat the water and sugar over medium heat until the sugar is completely dissolved. This should only take a few minutes.
  2. Remove the pot from the heat and let stand for about 5 minutes before adding the raspberries. The gives a lovely fresh flavour rather than the jammy flavour of more cooked berries.
  3. Puree the syrup either in a blender or with a hand blender.
  4. Strain the syrup through a fine mesh sieve and leave to cool completely.
For the Cocktail
  1. First add the egg white to the shaker and shake for about 10 seconds.
  2. Now add the remaining ingredients to the shaker except for the soda, top with ice and shake for 30 seconds.
  3. Strain the drink into a glass and top up with soda or tonic.
Notes
  1. Use leftover syrup to make a raspberry gin & tonic for those evening you can't quite be bothered with the extra steps.
  2. The syrup and a few drops rose water topped with soda make a great non alcoholic option.
